New screens: Gods & Heroes assault PC

A clash of steel and muscle in combat shots from SOE's massively multiplayer game.

Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising has been hovering around a bit under the radar in recent times but with new screenshots materialising today it's time to take a fresh look at the game.

In development at Perpetual Entertainment and designed by Stieg Hedlund (lead designer of Diablo II), it's a massively multiplayer game with a mythical flavour and is set in Rome circa 300 BC. Players strap on boots as heroes of the ancient world and Perpetual promises "the most interactive, dynamic, strategic and engaging combat system of any MMG". Part of the gameplay involves training and commanding NPC squads in battle, a feature which is certainly intriguing.

We're expecting Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising to hit next year but in the meantime, enjoy the fresh screens.
